Cabo’s finest clubs offer discounted green fees and twilight rates
Golfers who visit Los Cabos this summer can expect well-conditioned courses, plenty of availability, a friendly Cabo welcome—and deeply discounted green fees. Summer is family vacation time, but it’s also the season that invites golfers to take a swing at bargain rates on a bevy of world-class venues.
For example, at Palmilla Golf Club, recently treated to a $3.5 million renovation, “dynamic pricing” enables players to take advantage of adjusted rates based on demand, availability and other factors. The club offers discounted rates starting at $105 for an 18-hole round at Palmilla, the “Grande Dame” of Los Cabos golf and the first Jack Nicklaus Signature golf course built in Latin America. For an ultra-luxe vacation, the 27-hole facility’s golf packages feature accommodations at One&Only Palmilla, a world-class property ranked in the top 1% by TripAdvisor Traveler’s Choice Awards.
At Cabo del Sol, the outstanding 36-hole complex with superb designs by Jack Nicklaus (Ocean Course) and Tom Weiskopf (Desert Course), segmented pricing through Sept. 30 entices golfers with the best values of the year. For instance, from 12:30 to 3:20 p.m., green fees on the Ocean and Desert layouts are priced at $150 and $100, respectively. Rates drop to $115 and $75, respectively, after 3:30 p.m. Discounted replay rates are available at Cabo del Sol, as are attractively-priced golf packages in conjunction with the Sheraton Grand Los Cabos Hacienda del Mar.
At Quivira Golf Club (pictured above), its Jack Nicklaus-designed course marked by sheer granite cliffs, huge windswept dunes and rolling desert foothills, players are privy to summer rates in two time slots through Sept. 30. Quivira’s mid-morning rate to play a world-class layout with more oceanfront exposure than any other course in Los Cabos is $267 (11 a.m. to 1:24 p.m.). The twilight fee, available from 1:36 to 3:00 p.m., is $227. Rates include food and refreshments at the club’s four comfort stations. ‘Stay & Play Packages’ at Pueblo Bonito resort properties are available.
All three Questro Golf courses in Los Cabos offer significant seasonal discounts through Oct. 31. Puerto Los Cabos, situated on the outskirts of San Jose del Cabo, boasts a unique composite layout with nine-hole designs by Greg Norman and Jack Nicklaus. (A third nine by Nicklaus is under construction and will open next year). The 18-hole green fee at Puerto Los Cabos is $195. The twilight rate (after 1:30 p.m.) is $135. In addition, dynamic pricing at Puerto Los Cabos brings low season rates down to $115 based on availability. Complimentary refreshments are served at a pair of on-course palapas.
At Cabo Real, centerpiece of a resort development with 3.2 miles of beachfront, an 18-hole green fee of $180 and a twilight rate of $125 after 1:30 p.m. are promoted on the club’s Robert Trent Jones II-designed layout, a superb layout that climbs from the beachfront into steep desert foothills high above the Sea of Cortes.
Questro Golf’s Club Campestre, located five minutes from downtown San Jose del Cabo and a local favorite, is a Nicklaus Design course chiseled into sloping desert terrain that offers excellent value. In addition to an 18-hole green fee of $140 and a twilight rate of $100 that starts at 11 a.m. Campestre also has a dynamic pricing structure that reduces green fees on selected dates to $75, arguably the best bang for the buck in Los Cabos.
Among other amenities, green fees at all Los Cabos facilities include shared golf cart, use of practice facility and bottled water.
